The shunt was placed in the back of her head and goes all the way down into her stomach. We were able to see her x-ray and see that the skinny little tube actually swirls all around her whole abdominal cavity. She has plenty of tubing to grow with her for the next several years. The doctor did let us know that it is not uncommon for babies this small to have their shunts get blocked early on and require a shunt revision. We pray that her shunt would work well enough for her to not need a revision, but we trust that the Lord is in control. The doctor also mentioned that she is at risk for infection, so this is another way you can pray for Suzie.
Suzie had a great day today before her surgery. She was so happy and her breathing was doing really well. We posted a video as well as a pre-op and post-op picture of her. She continues to bless us more than we can even describe and we are SO thankful for the many people who are upholding her and us in prayer. We praise God for his incomprehensible mercy and love for us.
